The One-Hundred-Millionth G-Shock Delivered

Post by Racer-X » September 17th 2017, 3:40pm

by Robert-Jan Broer "Last month, the 100.000.000th Casio G-Shock has been delivered. An amazing number and accomplishment! Here at Fratello we are big fans of the G-Shock and recently covered the ‘essential’ model GW-5000.

The development of the G-Shock already started in 1981, a watch that needed to withstand drops and heavy knocks. Around 200 prototypes later, the first G-Shock was launched in 1983. This was reference DW-5000C. The ‘tough’ watch that led to an entire new entity within the Casio company."

During the mid-twentieth century when cell phones weren't an option and almost everyone needed a watch those Timex folks hit the billions.

Hadn't thought about that.

Hell, HMT may have made more just for India.
